One of my go to favorites.
Look: pale golden color. clear.
Smell: Hoppy and somewhat grape fruity.
Taste: Clean and hoppy. Not extremely bitter but I would not call it sessionable.

I loved All Day IPA. It has extreme amounts of hops, paired with citrus notes. It is very enjoyable on draft. I would recommend pouring it into a glass if you get in bottles.

What a classic IPA. Personally, I am not usually a fan of IPAs but this one blew me away. I will say, I drank it on draft and it was ice cold, which could have played a role in my enjoyment.

If you are someone who loves hops or just wants to try something new, this is definitely the beer to buy.

I am a very big IPA fan and I judge them on a hard rating. My first smell of All Day IPA was a strong hoppy flavor with citrus and pine. Good start for an IPA. The taste was strong and joyful. great hop and a great sense of malt in it with a good body. Aftertaste was a smooth hop flavor that made me want to crave more. Founders did a great job with this one.

Dark golden color with a small, diminishing off-white head. Sharp citric hops aromas with hints of grass and grains. Thinner feel, but by no means watery. Pine and light pepper in the flavors. Finish is mildly bitter, with hints of caramel. A nice easy drinking

19.2oz can into pint glass.

Look: Dark gold with impressive head retention.

Smell: Citrus, pine, and resin dominate. There's pale malt in there too, but it mostly shows up as a faintly toasted undertone.

Taste: Very balanced. Nice malt character with citrus hop notes in the front. Finishes with a clean, slightly piney bitterness. Doesn't wallop you with hops in the taste.

Feel: Light bodied and easy to drink.

Overall: Great session beer with all the things I like about more aggressive IPAs.

BOD 11/23/16 Clear golden pour with a touch of amber. Quite outstanding head volume and lacing, normal retention.

Outstanding, although intensity is a bit modest, nose of light citrus (lemon with a touch of grapefruit and pineapple) over a subtly sweet base. The malt base has both grainy and bready characteristics. As it warms, light notes of floral hops are presented.

The body is, surprisingly, light medium with a smooth texture that has subtle oily aspects. The carbonation / body balance is slightly below normal. Both the middle and finish levels of effervescence are slightly below adequate.

The flavor profile is subdued for an IPA. It lacks intensity and complexity. Granted this is a "session" IPA, but session IPAs are not a separate style and must be judged against the IPA standard. It is however, very well balanced. The bitterness is mild and combines both rind and pine in composition. Hop flavor presents as a combination of weak lemon and orange. The middle is not sweet per se but does balance the low bitterness level. The finish provides a light lingering bitterness. As a pale ale this one would score considerably higher. It is flavorful but as an IPA, this misses the mark and is "watery" - something an IPA should never be.

12oz bottle served cold into glass beer mug. Another cross border treasure, this is the last of a six pack I've been enjoying immensely. Bottled January 25, 2017.

Appearance - mostly clear, rich golden coloured beer with an impressive finger and a half of white head. Plenty of spotty lacing all around the glass.

Smell - rich citrus hops flood the nose with some earthy goodness mixed in. Subtle sweetness mixed in for a well balanced pale ale.

Taste - deliciously balanced, with a touch of juicy fruits, steady grain background and a nice kiss of sweetness at the end. Yet sufficient bitterness throughout. A great daily drinker.

Mouthfeel - smooth and light bodied, perfect carbonation and finish.

Overall - while All Day IPA might not be the best beer on the planet, it is one of the easiest drinking and harmonizes the balance between malt and hops, clean finish, light body and general drink ability to such an extent, that I now understand those who say if they had to drink one beer for the rest of their lives, it would be All Day IPA. Very delicious and a must try beer for any lover of any kind of beer.

A boring if completely inoffensive American Pale Ale. At least, in the area, Founders has made a huge push with this one - large singles are available in every liquor store, including those too near the capitol to usually sell singles; they obtained permission to be sold as "premiums", meaning that Founders really does seem to be making a concerted effort to get this onto every shelf.

That's more than reflected in the taste - what an inoffensive pale ale. This is the pale ale that I'd want to be the first someone tries. Neither east nor west, citrus and pine both collude to make for a mildly flavorful experience, just complex enough to mask the carbonation taste, but simple enough to where there isn't much to speak of beyond the lemon, maybe a hint of ginger? Maybe not.

The generic pale ale to purchase when you want a pale ale, but crave no particular brand or flavor. Ingenious, if unexciting.

Pours a golden color with a white head that goes away quickly. Can smell hops with a hint of citrus along with some pine. Has a grainy malt taste along with a hop aftertaste.
